Growing local

A few people have asked me about the beetroot recipe I use because of a photo I put up.

Basically, I boil (whole unskinned - rub skin off when cool) or steam (sliced or cubed) beetroot until tender. Then I dress it with chopped herbs (I like mint or parsley), 1 tsp of sugar, 1 tsp of vinegar and a sloosh of water (or use tablespoons if you're doing a fair bit).
The same dressing is good for chopped tomato salad too - but better with basil or coriander and no sloosh of water.

Vetiver grass helps to stabilise soil and protects it against erosion.  It can protect against pests and weeds. Vetiver is also used as animal feed. (Wiki.)
